Stage 43 is among the best community theatre groups in BC and is part of the Theatre BC Fraser Valley Zone. In 2010 we won, along with many other honours, Theatre BC's Best Production Award, which is the Stanley Cup of community theatre, for our production of Ravenscroft. Over the years we have been proud to take home many other awards as well - from Theatre BC Zone Festivals and the Community Theatre Coalition. In 2017, our production of Bingo! won 5 awards at the Fraser Valley Zone Festival (Best Properties, Best Supporting Female Actor [tie], Best Ensemble, Best Director, and Best Production). Bingo! then went on to represent the Fraser Valley Zone at Theatre BC's Mainstage, where we were honoured with 2 awards (Best Sound, Best Lighting).
